What's with "you cannot make a post so soon after your last"?

What's with "you cannot make a post so soon after your last"?

I've never seen that before. I can understand that it exists to prevent someone from bombarding the forum.

But I never knew there was a time limit before. I just made a reply post, and then about ten minutes later I tried to start an entirely
new thread in another subforum - the two posts weren't even remotely related.

When trying to create the new thread, about an entirely different topic, I got the prompt: "you cannot make a post so soon after your last".

[And...the forum let me post here, but it wouldn't let me post in the other subforum.]

Any idea why that happened?

I wasn't aware of it either I will 'report' your post just as a quick way of flagging this up to MH.

IF YOU GET ANY WARNING MESSAGE ASSOCIATED WITH THIS BEING REPORTED DONT WORRY ABOUT IT (not sure if that happens or not)
How strange are the ways of the gods ...........and how cruel.

Yeah that's a weird warning that would pop up randomly when I would test the board sometimes. I am not really sure what triggers it, I'll have to look into it and see.

Might have happened when daylight savings changed. Clocks got messed up.
